Burger, fries, salads, drinks, hot dogs at Portillo's in Buena Park, CA

Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner—Located right outside the Knott’s Berry Farm entrance, Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner has been serving homestyle favorites to families since 1934. It was even named one of the 50 most kid-friendly restaurants by Open Table in 2019. Bring your crew here to enjoy a family-style meal with fried chicken and your choice of sides like mashed potatoes, corn, baked beans, and more. Be sure to save room for the pie (we recommend the hometown favorite, boysenberry pie).

Portillo’s Hot Dogs—Chicago-style dogs come to Orange County at this spot that’s perfect for family dining. The menu includes family favorites like hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, burgers, ribs, and pasta. While Portillo’s might be known for their hot dogs, they are equally famous for their chocolate cake and the over-the-top chocolate cake shake.
